Shogun 2 is set in 16th-century feudal Japan, in the aftermath of the Ōnin War. The country is fractured into rival clans led by local warlords, each fighting for control. The player takes on the role of one of these warlords, with the goal of dominating other factions and claiming his rule over Japan. The standard edition of the game will feature a total of eight factions (plus a ninth faction for the tutorial), each with a unique starting position and different political and military strengths.
We test with the built in STEAM ‘Benchmark DX11 Graphics Balanced 720p’ setting.
This engine proves very demanding and the A8 4555M struggles to maintain smooth frame rates, even at balanced 720p settings.
